. thank you chairman royce for calling this hearing. upon taking office, president obama inherited an almost nonexistent strategy to deal with the threat of iran nuclear weapons capabilities. he focused on the diplomatic , but the limitations became apparent when iran walked away from the p5 plus one twotiations in october of thousand one. the ministration shifted to a two track strategy, which coupled engagement with economic pressure through sanctions, making it clear that all options remained on the table. this is the policy i favorite, and the president with secretary clinton succeeded beyond expectations in uniting the international community against the nuclear ambitions. the un security council of the european union, acting in parallel with our efforts, imposed sanctions on iran. this committee took the lead on a bipartisan basis to pass sanctions legislation, the royce angle bill, designed to cripple the economy, to change the calculus of the iranian regime. that was a bill that passed unanimously out of this committee. i was proud to work on such a bipartisan basis with chair

at introduce the president of the united states, bram -- barack obama. >> thanks for everybody out there who cares deeply about this issue. monica's story is important because for all the day-to-day fights here in washington around the affordable care act, it's stories like hers why we took on this fight in the first place. r too long, working families were more vulnerable to the angst yites of today's economy than a broken health care system. we took up the fight because we believe that in america, nobody should have to worry about going broke just because somebody in their family or they got sick. we believe that nobody should have to choose between putting food on their kid's table or taking them to see a doctor. we believe we are a better country than a country where we allow every day 14,000 americans to lose their health care coverage or where tens of thousands of americans die because they didn't have health -- out of re oup pocket costs drove people into poverty. we thought we were better than that and that's why we took this on. [applause] and that's what has gotten lost a

talk about a place where immigration and health come together and i thank president obama for lifting the travel ban on those affected with h.i.v. -- infected with h.i.v. it had been my original intent to talk about world aids day, which we celebrated yesterday but i wanted to pay my respects to those fasting for immigration. our work on h.i.v.-aids has been a product of bipartisan cooperation in this congress over a long period of time. in the white house, though, first with president clinton, we increased the bilateral programs to fight aids and helped create, authorize and fund the global fund. then under the leadership of president bush we established pepfar and provided the necessary funding to ramp up emergency response to the crisis. president obama has strengthened those efforts and boosted our investments by law firming the national hiv-aids strategy. in addition to that, president obama announces that pepfar would not only reach its goal of providing treatment for six million people by 2013, but will exceed that farget by providing 6.7 million people with life-saving
